How to make the most of your ‘care bubble’

4 Nov 2020 / Artisan Aunties

We all know about support bubbles between families and friends, but what about creating a ‘care bubble’ with someone you know and can rely upon to help you.

According to government support bubble guidelines (correct at time of writing), if you live by yourself but have carers visiting you, you can still form a support bubble with another household. This means that you do not have to choose between the at-home care services you need to live independently and the friendship you have with the people in your family support bubble, even if you can’t see them very often.

Creating your own care bubble

In such uncertain times, you don’t want to have a lot of different people coming into your home. So it is best for just one person to provide all the support you need, and in doing so you’ll be creating your own ‘care bubble’. An Artisan Auntie or Uncle will be willing to provide whatever it is you need. So if you need someone to help with the housework, gardening, medication, taking you to the GP for a blood test or ‘flu jab, the same person will be more than willing to help you out with all these tasks.

Not only is this more secure at a time when we need to be socially distanced, it will also help you to get to know someone better. And the more you get to know someone, the more you’ll enjoy their visits.

In this way you’ll create your own care bubble of people you know and trust, who will do things your way, and can chat about the things that interest you.

Socially distanced doesn’t have to mean isolated

With an Auntie or Uncle helping you out with practical tasks, you can still benefit from their companionship. Knowing that you will be seeing someone on a regular basis is a great comfort that will bring you peace of mind.
